Default Would I be Able to get a hookah through ?

Customs in Australia, my mum and my little brother went Turkey for a vacation, and because they have some pretty good Nargiles over there. I thought she would buy me one for use once in a while. Would she be able to get it through without any problems? And also I live in Australia if that matters!


Also this may be the wrong section, im not sure.

The pipe should be no problem, however i do know Australia does have very strict laws on the import of materials, so i would check with them first.

Well they don't allow any kinds of seeds and all that. So bringing in Tobacco wouldn't be a good idea even tho im not bringing any in. But I might actually ring them up and ask. Because it's like bringing in a vase or something because both of them are made out of clay and other materials etc.

getting through british customs is as easy as 123 you are allowed anything up to 500grams of tobacco and 2L of alcohol. you are NOT allowed to bring seeds in however. But from personal experience a hookah should be no problem (in britain) the laws are subject to change in australia obviously. hope this helps.

Thanks for that mate, it's probably the same thing in Australia then, I'll still check it up tho.

Seeds that can harm wildlife in the country it's being brought to, because the seeds may have like small insects and shit on them.
